Making veggie soup? double it!

Everybody knows the best trick for getting something done, is, well, to simply get it done. Works 99.9% of the time. The thing is- many times getting off the couch -and starting to cook from scratch-is a 99.9% no-go. I mean- that’s how I felt before -now I’m retired+an introvert+I love eating + planning my …

“What a genius!” (really??)

As it happens- across the street from my house, there is a kindergarten. Before you go all “awww-they are soooo sweeeeet, those little innocent faces !” , well, not exactly. I mean- they are 5-6 YO -not the actually innocent 0-3, and some of them can start the revolution today, so to speak. The thing …

How much did it cost to change my “honest opinion”?

You remember I am a class A introvert and a known unashamed nerd. Now you remember. Anyway- I love autumn and winter, can’t deal with harsh sun and heat- which is a shame since I live in a very hot place, suffice to say we have 8-9 months of summer a year- and I do …

My Duolingo hacks!

I do hope you are aware of this life-changing app. #oh-no paid links, no cousin who developed the app, plus- as you will see in a moment- the hacks are entirely free- and that is exactly the reason they are considered hacks. I just like this app -I get to learn a language, feel challenged …

There’s always an alternative way to go.

Look at this picture of the cow and her calf ( I mean- I don’t know for sure that it’s hers, maybe she’s a calf snatcher, but they seemed comfortable together and wow so cute -I just had to stop my run and take a picture for all of you. I knew it would be …

My sudden FITBIT popularity. (???)

I already told you I own a Fitbit Inspire 2 watch, and I use it to track my workouts and get much needed moral support and slacking tracking. Here is link to my previous post: Fitbit Inspire2 : was it worth buying? I also told you a long time ago that I am a class A …

“Why not go to paris to buy a Chanel bag”?

So this morning I saw a WhatsApp message my friend sent me last night(I change to flight mode” at 18:00. no desire for any kind of interaction after 18:00. told you I go to sleep early- around 20:00. She wrote:” want to go to paris with me in november so I can buy the Chanel …

My favourite Whatsapp button.

First, I want to thank the Whatsapp inventors , because for me, as a class A introvert, the fact that I don’t actually have to speak with people- is such a treat. I do 90% of my (almost non-existent ) daily communications -through Whatsapp- and prefer short , distant texts to “warm and heartfelt “phone …

Autumn. cinnamon.

It is supposedly autumn here. It’s just so hot it’s quite idiotic to be celebrating autumn. Because autumn-for me- is a celebration. I can’t stand the heat, the blinding sun, the fatigue and weariness that go hand in hand (in my case?) with this heat. Sure- the abundance of fruit and quick hot shower water …

Instead of Botox?(part 1).

So I turned 53 this week, and I thought this is a great time to share my encounter with the ultimate fountain of youth- Botox . As usual- I remind that I am no dermatologist or health instructor or registered dietitian or registered anything- except an early retired lawyer who happens to believe in doing …
